So apparently one or more people out there can't type their very-similar-to-mine email address correctly. This is most likely because my email address is my first name and last initial at gmail.com, making it quite generic and quite probably just one letter or a missing number off from thousands of other addresses. What this means is that I'm constantly getting "Please confirm your email address!" messages from sites I've never joined, mailing list stuff from a restaurant in Monterey, updates on my nonexistent terrier (including a happy birthday message) from a vet in California, and most recently friends list notifications (for usernames like "wise50something" and "theultimateexperience") and message updates from a site called "Shaindy.com", which I've never heard of. I have an image in my mind of the mysterious individual responsible for all of these... I envision an older lady, possibly a widow, who's not so great with the internet (and therefore poor at remembering/correctly typing her address) but who loves her dear little doggie and her dinners out.

ETA: I googled Shaindy.com, and discovered...this. My impression of my mysterious address-mistyper has just made a sharp turn into Ohdearsville.
